Sending Donkey Smiles :-)

I made a card for Michelle a few days ago and thought it would be nice to make her a little photo album too :-)

There is a lovely appeal on the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge asking us to send Donkey Smiles to Michelle :-) ,,,



I used the lovely Donkey image by Tina Wenke for Stampavie created especially for Michelle's appeal. You can download the image and donate to her fund in the Stampavie DT blog.
I coloured the image with Prisma pencils and copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink.The papers are Basic Grey Granola papers which I think go really well with this cute donkey :-)

The flower is a selection from my drawer, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and stickled with my fave star dust stickles :-) The 'My Little Donkey's' was stamped using a Hero Arts Mixed Letters set with Rich Cocoa memento ink ,, this was then inked with the stormy sky distress ink too :-) The ribbons were in my drawer and the twine is American Tag hemp twine :-) I looked EVERYWHERE for some of this and completely missed it in the Simon Says Stamp Store ,, they have LOADS of it is all colours !! I need new glasses !! :-)



There are 12 blank pages inside for Michelle to stick her photo's in :-) I thought she might like to take a few photo's of her beloved Donkeys when she has to go in to hospital ??
I am sending this album and this card on Behalf of the Simon Says Stamp company. i hope Michelle likes them !
